In the Kranzberg Arts Center Black Box Theater

Award-winning Dallas actress Sherry Jo Ward chronicles her struggle with Stiff Person Syndrome, an incredibly rare disease that impairs her mobility and causes her unexplained pain. Inevitable Theatre Company proudly presents the Regional Premiere of the Risk Theater Initiative production of STIFF, directed by Marianne Galloway.


Part stand-up comedy, part PowerPoint presentation, STIFF is a unique and engaging first person account of what it means to re-assess one’s own goals and ambition when confronted with a life-altering diagnosis.


The original production of STIFF was the unanimous standout at the 2017 Festival of Independent Theatres (FIT) in Dallas, TX, where it won recognition for Best Actress and Best New Play from the Dallas-Fort Worth Theatre Critics Forum.


Sherry performed the devastating role of Shirley Jones in Inevitable Theatre Company's inaugural production, Jordan by Anna Reynolds and Moira Buffini, at the Out of the Loop Festival in Addison, TX, in 2007. This acclaimed production was later revived at Baylor University as a benefit for the Family Abuse Center in Waco, TX.


The company that started with Sherry and a chair is proud to see her return to the Inevitable stage ... with another chair.
